Dustin Rhodes shared in a recent interview with Bleacher Report that his dad Dusty did not want him to get in the wrestling business.

“For the first time I was let in on all the secret stuff, the kayfabe stuff, I’d been longing for so, so long. He gave me a crash course…He didn’t want me to get into the wrestling industry. But that’s all I wanted. I grew up desiring nothing but the wrestling business. I loved everything about it: the showmanship, the sport, the athleticism. What dad did, he was my hero. Growing up, he was the greatest to me. Above anybody. I wanted to be just like Dusty Rhodes the American Dream.
